“Both abundance and lack [of abundance] exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend." - Sarah Ban Breathnach

Hope Raises Her Timid Head

Rom bumped into a chiropractor at the store the other day. She had had (yes, past tense!) chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. She said that she overcame it using a supplement called Immunocal from Immunotec.

Now, I am extremely skeptical. It looks like it's just a protein supplement, and it's very expensive. But she swears, swears, swears that it made her better. She also said that the improvement was nearly immediate -- within a couple of weeks. So, on her recommendation, I'm going to order ONCE -- give it a try -- and see what happens. If it works, I'll be dancing in the streets! If it doesn't -- well, I won't have to keep using it for months to see if it finally kicks in.

In the meantime, I'm going to be adding all the positive lifestyle changes that will support healing -- pacing, good diet, graded exercise, good sleep, stress reductions. Even if it isn't the miracle for me it was for her, I'll still be in a healthier, happier place.

Wish me luck!

I stumbled on your page some how. Have you ever tried EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique? I have used it for a while for pain and many other things. You can go see an EFT Thereapist and it can be quite expensive but you can also use the technique on yourself. E-mail me and I can send you on to some great resources! It has been such a blessing in my life. May God bless you abundantly! - Sarah

Thank you! I am looking into alternative treatments for CFS. This looks interesting, and I'll definitely explore it more.
